Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Two top stories lead our day. First, Mashape open sources its Kong API management platform, which could be a big deal for anyone that writes externally consumable APIs. The second story is at Broken Links where they talk about the future of the open web.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
